The Ballad of Star Butterfly
Brian H. Kim & Patrick Stump
The Ballad of Star Butterfly

From Star vs. the Forces of Evil - Face the Music.

*** (NOTE - THE SONG LYRICS HAVE SPOILERS.) ***

I was fortunate enough to get involved really early in the process for this musical number, and I wrote the first pass of the song to the episode’s black-and-white storyboards. @arythusa and @amelia-lorenz, who boarded this two-parter and wrote all the lyrics to the songs, are endless fountains of creativity. 

Lessons learned about Patrick Stump: 1) he is very, very funny; 2) he is a freaking pro in the studio. Before we recorded each chunk of the song, he would listen to my temp vocal and then slowly pace around the live room and work everything out in his head, make a few tweaks so that the melody would best suit his voice, run those changes by us, and then we’d be off. 

And then later, I brought in my good friend Michael Kohl (who has a particularly wonderful YouTube channel with his band Extra Lives) to re-record the guitar parts and add some sick solo lines.

This whole process, from top to bottom, has been my favorite of my whole SVTFOE experience thus far, and I hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoyed making it.

Cartoon Characters who are 14 years old

It’s crazy how different being 14 is portrayed across cartoons. When I was 14 both my life and I were a mess.

Yuri on Ice Midsummer Night’s Dream was such a nice official art and both Yuri and Yurio were soooo adorable! But yeah, Yuri Katsuki with similar clothing but adult sized! His eros is showing and I am dying XD although, if he portraits a kind of love, dressed and acting like this, I feel ludus would be a better match… I don’t know, what do you think? :/
